Former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has heard all the stories about how his draft stock is dropping, and he has a straightforward request: Watch him play football.
Asked by Trey Wingo on ESPN what is causing his stock to drop, Bridgewater answered, “It’s simple: The Pro Day.”
But while Bridgewater knows his Pro Day left a lot to be desired, he believes coaches, scouts and general managers who watch his game tape will see that he throws the ball a lot better on the field than he did during that workout.
“Put on the game tape. The game tape speaks volumes because I’m in live action, I’m out there making reads, going through progressions, redirection protection, signaling hot routes, getting the offense in and out of the right play. Looking at those things, I think those things outweigh the Pro Day,” Bridgewater said.
If Bridgewater doesn’t hear his name called one week from tonight, he’ll learn the hard way that the tape doesn’t always outweigh the Pro Day.
